It's just the figures I want at present, although if it fits with whatever fluff I come up with, then a supplement for them may be handy

I hope they haven't axed the Catachans. I've procrastinated on doing a small Armageddon ork hunter force based on them. I can't find them on any of the trustworthy third party online retailers, but they are still on the GW site. Maybe they will update the squad box to match the much better HQ box and the simply stunning Harker and Straken minis. It could do with an update. They would be pretty awesome considering how far their sculpts and molding have come since they initially came out.

The catachan heavy weapons have just been redone as singles so I doubt they're getting binned.

The Catachans getting binned?

Thats about as likely as the rumour in 4th ed that the Space Wolves were going to be discontinued...

Not binned, just taken out of the main IG/AM codex. Zero references to them so far from pictured pages, I'll be reserving judgement until the book is out/leaked but it's curious to me to say the least.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

It's possible they're saving all the Catachan stuff for a supplement.

But that's just guessing.

It sounds like all catachan stuff will stay direct only,
I do expect a supplement at some point,
partly because i'm expecting GW to kick out about 20 codexs/mini codexes a year the way they are going

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Hopefully they are updating the catachan plastics. They must be getting on a bit now, 15 years or so maybe, not sure. With the advancements in plastic moulding technology and the kits GW have been releasing just lately it would be nice to see them redone. I've never really liked the plastic catachans with their constipated facial expressions and strange shoulder joints.

I doubt it best case they are going to end up like the sisters and remain web only items, worst case a they make them call in only, worst case b they move them to FW.
